Ghosts and Bedbugs at Hawaii's Kona Beach Hotel
The Shadowlands, one of the internet's creepiest compendiums for real-life haunting stories, has a thumbnail listing in its Haunted Places list of King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel, located on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Footsteps. Apparitions. Hauntings. Ancient Polynesian warriors. The pissed off bones of the Hawaiian King himself, buried at an undisclosed location someplace beneath the hotel, that only his ancestors know about. A portrait of Queen Lilliuokalani, that glares at you and breathes.
It turns out this place is indeed haunted by more than just Hawaiian royalty, but by dozens of angry, restless spirits. You can even see them during daylight hours -- their hair-raising reviews on Tripadvisor will surely have you heading for the rolling green hills of The Big Island -- or flinging yourself into the nearest live volcano.
Bed bugs. Brown water. Black mildew. Drunken brawls. Lumpy mattresses. Blood stains. Peeling wallpaper. Filthy rugs. Sewage smells. Spiders on the lanais. Roaches on the carpet. A hair in the eggs.
When it comes to Tripadvisor, we usually take the negative reviews with a grain of salt, but the overwhelmingly bad imput here makes us think the spirits are frightening away the clientele for a very good reason. One review even suggested that The Great Warrior King's name has been disgraced. We can't think of a good enough reason to come back from the dead and demand some attention.
